HC Deb 08 May 1907 vol 174 c221

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether in the inquiry into the need for compulsory weighing and measuring in connection with the iron and steel trades he will appoint a representative from Scotland to the Committee, in view of the fact that these trades in that country employ a large number of workmen.


I will consider my hon. friend's suggestion; but I prefer to retain the Committee as it is, unless I find that the conditions under which these industries are carried on in Scotland are so different from those obtaining in England as to make separate representation indispensable.
